Cisco VPN client causing Win XP VPN issue

Running Win XP SP2, I vpn to a remote server using Win XP
basic VPN connection and I RDP to a workstation using mstsc.
As soon as I install Cisco VPN Client Version 5.0.03.0530,
without even first rebooting the computer when prompted
after the Cisco VPN installation; i vpn to the remote server
using Win XP vpn connection, mstsc connects to the workstation
but leaves the screen black and in a matter of a few seconds disconnects
the session.

If I mstsc a local server, the session and the screen connects fine.
So something is interferring with the VPN connection; i saw there
was something called Deterministic Network Enhancer which i
unchecked but still no luck.

I uninstall Cisco VPN client but Win VPN and mstsc still do not work.
I get the feeling Cisco VPN is replacing a win core dll or some other file
and messing things up. If I do a system restore to bring my XP to a state
right before i installed Cisco VPN, regular win xpn and mstsc works fine.

Does someone have any idea what the problem is and how to fix it?

Thank you

I think Cisco VPN Client 5 is for Vista only. For XP, use 4.8.

My experience has been for ages that the Cisco VPN client breaks the native XP VPN client. I haven't tried in recent versions, but in the low 4.x days before I move away from Cisco client VPN it definitely broke it.
